Pharmacovigilance (PV, also known as drug safety) is the process-driven practice of detecting, assessing, understanding and preventing adverse effects (AE) or any other medicine-related problem.
Touching on almost every stage of the drug life-cycle, PV ensures that drugs are safe for patients — forming a vital function for any life sciences company. With improving patient safety being the central mission of the life sciences, pharmacovigilance jobs are set to become increasingly influential in the future.
As a pharmacovigilance professional, you’ll be directly dealing with the benefit-risk assessment of new medications. With the opportunity to improve patient outcomes and work in a host of locations, pharmacovigilance roles can be extremely rewarding.
